Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 Notebook

2 Answers

Desktop icons How do I permanently move the position of icons on the desktop of my new Toshiba Satellite Pro L300? Because 2 of us use this machine, we like to keep our respective program icons separate, mine on the left my husband's on the right. Although the icons do move, they immediately return to their original position when the mouse button is released. It's a daft question, but not being able to do it is driving us crazy!

I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite lAptopC-55-B5298 8.1


On a Windows 8 machine you have two places to put an icon for a program.

1. The start menu on windows 8 which is the first set of icons you see.

2. The Desktop, which is like the Windows 7 desktop and you put a shortcut here.
This is easy to do as you right click with the mouse and pick "new" then "shortcut".
Then pick browse and pick out the program file you want to run when the icon is pressed.
Then press "OK" and it is stored on the desktop.

On the start menu you have to go to the bottom of the icons to the down arrow.
Press the down arrow and it will take you to the "Apps", which is the list of installed program.
Then scroll sideways to the right until you see the program you want on the screen.
Pick the icon of the program you want on the start menu, with the right hand key of the mouse.
On the menu that pops up, pick "pin to start menu", and its done.
You can re-arrange the icons on the start menu by dragging them around with the mouse.

My refurbished Satellite A305-S6825 boots up to a blue screen and nothing else . . .the mouse moves but nothing shows on the screen and it just sits there!


Just do onthing..

Once you get blue screen, Press ALT +CTRL+DELETE Key and you will get windows task manager. There you need to go to FILE and select New Task (RUN ) and type explorer.exe and press . Now you can see the icons on desktop. If still you are not able to get icons you have to format or Repair the operating system

Toshiba satellite L300 has lines on the screen int hat can see desktop icons properly. What could be the solution?


FIrst thing to try.

Try to display laptop on external monitor.

See if problem is replicated. If it is then it is your video card and most likely board. If it is not then you may have to replace your Lcd.

Start there and share results on thread.

My laptop's (Toshiba Satellite A105-S361)desktop doesn't bring the desktop icons and the task bar after I loaded AVG 9 antivirus software. Why is that? Would you mind give me a solution, pls?


The desktop icons and the task bar would generally dissappear if you have a virus on the PC. However, sometimes improper software installations may cause undesired results like we have right now. Instead of trying uninstalling anything, try restoring the system to a previous point using system restore.
